Calling the shooting death of a TSA agent at Los Angeles International Airport “a profound sacrifice,” U.S. Attorney Eric Holder on Wednesday pledged there will be no “rest until justice has been done,” the Los Angeles Times reports .
Holder spoke during the ceremony for Geraldo Hernandez, who became the first TSA agent to die in the line of duty after a shooting rampage.
Hernandez’s death “marked him a man of bravery and of valor,” Holder said. “But what truly made Officer Hernandez a hero was how he lived: with kindness, with consideration — and with love — for all who were fortunate to know him.”
His wife, Ana Hernandez, told the audience that her husband “was a great man who always showed his love for our family.”
